					When decorating or furnishing a café, it is easy for owners to get swept up in a whirl
of ambition and creativity and lose sight of the basics.

extra bit of effort to choose quality seating. Comfortable customers will stay in your
café longer and spend more money, which can only be a positive thing for you and
your business.
